Connect GSD: Mentorship Platform
Launching March 2022
Sign up below: Mentor to Mentee matching will begin in mid-March.
If you have already signed up as a mentor or mentee, please consider filling out this brief survey about your experience. Your feed back will help us to improve the mentorship program after its soft launch.
Through Connect GSD, current students will have ongoing access to an ample network of alumni mentors trained to offer guidance and advice on academic and career-related matters.
Students will match with a personal mentor(s) based on shared academic interests, career goals, life challenges, and experiences. Students can also use the platform’s discussion guides and goal-setting activities to spark deeper conversations with their mentors. Topics of guidance range from time management and work-life balance to networking and job-seeking advice, but will change based on individual needs.
Our partner, Mentor Collective, works to train mentors to confidently assist students in their endeavors and provides helpful guides and resources in order to prepare students to make lasting connections with their mentors.
